pretty good food, for Mexican food in Mississippi. Didn't expect it to be as good as the Mexican food in Texas, but it came close, and their ice tea is served in a small pitcher instead of a glass, SO CUTE!

My friends and I discovered the cheap deals they have. We found two buck margaritas and dollar tacos the day we went! The interior is well decorated. Our server wasn't overly friendly, but for those prices... we didn't mind. Everything else was great.

This place is ok but nothing special when it comes to Mexican food. They have several locations in the area so it's pretty obvious it is a popular place but I have developed a taste for more traditional Mexican food with a bit more kick to it.

On the board they advertised a price for a product they sold. When we attempted to order it the waitress rudely stated it was not available. Go where they honor what the advertise.

My husband and I had almost despaired of finding good Mexican food on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, then we happened int El Rancho. Oh, my! Superb chile rellenos (my husband's benchmark for Mexican restaurants), chorizo/queso dip that is the perfect balance of both. The tacos are the stars!

We shared a beef nacho (with onions) and a beef burrito combination meal (with beans and rice). The beef nachos was a large portion with lots of meat and onions on it. The beef burrito was average (could have used more meat in it). Unfortunately I did not think either meal had much taste, especially in the form of any... More
